Re: Guppy disasters (was: Chloramine Diasters)

The cajun fish-keeper writes that he/she is having trouble keeping guppies 
alive, and that the tanks are displaying very large ammonia spikes.  I see no 
mention of filtration.  Sometimes the plant/fish ratio is just not favorable 
enough to eliminate the need for filtration.  This is particularly true in 
breeding tanks, where the numbers of fish can vary, and feeding can be heavy. 
 Consider your fitration arrangement.  Also adding baking soda to buffer the 
tank while also adding Proper pH seems both redundant and risky.

Just my opinion.
